There will only be 5 of us, Kariba itself will be nice.

There is a wide variety of house boats available for hire. They range from the super larney to a deck on pontoons with a motor and tent roof. I've been on quite a few over the years ranging from the super luxary to the fairly basic. Another option if you are more interested in fishing is to just hire a motor boat with driver. Houseboats that I've been on that were nice are, Liberty Bell, Tropicana and Utopia. Most charges are per person per day/night plus catering, plus fuel, plus lake fee's, plus fishing fee's. If you tell them what you want to drink they will organize on a drink or return basis.
Your best bet would be to Google "Kariba Houseboats" as there is quite a selection. Try and stay away from the big tour operators and make sure the boat is based at Kariba and not on the other side of the lake. :thumleft:
